The Fishing

The Sea of Cortez, one of the world’s most rich and diverse marine environments, is one of the few locales that yield marlin year-round. Besides being a prime spring spawning area for striped marlin up to 200 pounds, Baja’s East Cape is a favored location to achieve bill fishing’s Grand Slam, adding blue and black marlin (200-1000 pounds) and Pacific sailfish (80-150 pounds) to the mix.

Catch-and-release is strongly encouraged for all billfish. These apex predators comprise the pinnacle of a fragile marine eco-system. Conversely, plentiful species like tuna and dorado (mahi-mahi) reproduce in the millions and make excellent table fare. These pelagic (open ocean) species roam the 1500-7500-foot depths close to shore here. Numerous inshore species add to the incredible variety of marine life in the Sea of Cortez.

We’ll provide everything you require to enjoy this sport fishing mecca, including tackle-rigged 28-32 foot cruisers and 23-25 foot super pangas with savvy English-speaking local guides. Most vacation packages at Hotel Playa del Sol include your hotel room, charter boat rental and three meals daily in our casual dining facility. Packages can be tailored to any size group from 1-100 people.

The resort provides fillet and freezer services, and a smokehouse is available. Your fishing manager will coordinate your charter, arrange lunches and beverages, assist you at dockside, and process your catch.

Our fleet, the East Cape’s largest and newest, comes fully equipped with all rods, reels, tackle, and our professional captains enjoy teaching beginner and novice saltwater anglers. Angling presentations include live bait (available daily from bait skiffs), trolled lures, and fly-casting.
